Whitney Port was married last weekend to Tim Rosenmanin in Palm Springs, wearing a beautiful long-sleeved couture gown design by Ashi Studio. You can bet your something-blue that Whitney Port’s wedding dress is going to be the inspiration to many a 2016 bride, but whether you’re going to emulate the high-low gown; the half ponytail, half bun bridal hairstyle; or the standout floral wedding shoes, I’ve sourced all the inspiration you need to take to your wedding dress designer; hair and make-up artist or, if you’re lucky, to Jimmy Choo to design your wedding shoes.
Whitney Port’s Wedding Dress
If you’re blessed with Whitney Port’s long legs, why not show them off? A high-low hemline wedding dress is the perfect way to do so.
‘At the start, Whitney saw a dress from the latest couture collection and she got inspired for an idea for her wedding dress,’ Mohammad Ashi of Ashi Studio said. ‘It was inspired by a vintage chandelier from Venice and Florence.’
Whitney Port’s Wedding Shoes & Accessories
While wedding shoes might be hidden under a traditional meringue-style wedding dress, or under swathes of fabric in a mermaid gown, the high-low wedding dress Whitney Port opted for is the perfect frame to a stunning pair of wedding shoes. I’m a major fan of Sophia Webster, recently featuring her wedding and her shoes, and I’ve even written about how I’ve been able to include them in the budget: If the Shoe fits (Your Budget)!
Whitney Port’s Hair and Make-up
Whitney Port’s Bridal hair and make-up was simple, and therefore easily achieved too. In keeping with her very natural, californian glow, Whitney’s skin was lightly contoured and bronzed, while keeping her eyes understated and her lips a soft pink.
Instead of a fancy up-do, Whitney’s hair was a simple half-up bun or bun-loop, easy to replicate, and done without the assistance of a hair stylist. While the loop is easy, you still want the hair to be controlled, polished and have shine and hold.
Starting with clean hair, apply a blow-dry styling product like Kerastase Creme-de-la Creme, a thermo-protective cream shields and styles strands during heat styling for lasting control. Using a product like this before styling will make the hair easier to manage during the styling process, and ensure hair has staying power for dancing well into the night.

For added volume, backcomb the hair before creating the loop, otherwise use the same hair-tie to loop half the hair. You can then create some volume by roughening up the strands, pulling a bit of the loop out as desired. Finish with a hairspray that allows some movement, like favourite Elnett’s normal hold spray.
